Harivarasanam – Sing Along
September 23rd, 2009 by Ram

Harivarasanam (also known as Hariharasuthāshtakam) is a devotional song composed in the astakam metre, recited at Sabarimala (the principal Ayyappan pilgrimage site), before closing the temple door every night.

The song was written by Kambamgudi Kulathur Iyer and Swami Vimochanananda sang it for the first time at Sabarimala.Though there have been many versions of this song sung by many renowned vocalists, the Sabarimala temple plays the rendition by Dr.KJ Yesudas every evening after the final pooja. Harivarasanam is written in highly Sanskritised Malayalam.

Today, as the final verses are being sung, all the assistant Santhis (priests) leave the Sreekovil one by one. As the song ends, only the Melsanthi is inside. He extinguishes the lamps one at a time and closes the doors for the night.
